    Abstract: In an wireless communication system, base stations will be set to prioritize serving one type of user equipment device (UE) over another type of UE, and each base station's respective prioritization will be conveyed to UEs to facilitate base station selection. That way, when a UE faces a choice of whether to connect with one base station or another, the UE could determine which base station gives higher priority to the UE's type and could connect with that base station, even if the UE detects stronger coverage of the other base station. And if the UE finds itself in coverage of a base station that gives lower priority to the UE's type than to another UE type, the UE could still connect with that base station unless the UE finds another base station that gives higher priority to the UE's type.

Wireless signals sent by a mobile system over a wireless charging channel are used to initiate communication between an NFC reader presented in a base station and a passive NFC tag (or an active NFC tag used in a passive mode) present in the mobile system. Such feature allows the mobile system to act as an initiator for NFC communication without requiring the mobile system to be equipped with an NFC reader. A wireless power receiver of a mobile system may communicate with a wireless power transmitter of a base station using backscatter modulation. Commands of a standard wireless charging protocol may be repurposed to send a request for initiation of an NFC session from a mobile system to a base station.

  • Patent number: 10425889
    Abstract: A communication device may search via a first wireless interface so as to specify one or more candidate access points and send, to a terminal device, an information request for requesting the terminal device to send information for establishing a wireless connection with an experienced access point. The experienced access point is an access point having an experience of establishing a wireless connection with the terminal device. The terminal device stores use information which has been used by the terminal device for establishing the wireless connection with the experienced access point. The communication device may receive a response including a target password included in the use information from the terminal device in response to sending the information request and establish a wireless connection with a target access point among the one or more candidate access points via the first wireless interface by using the target password included in the response.

  • Patent number: 10420161
    Abstract: Disclosed are structures and processes to help enable a wireless communication device (WCD) to support operation in a dual-connectivity scenario, such as where the WCD operates concurrently with 4G and 5G wireless connections over frequency channels in a common frequency band. Downlink low-noise-amplification could be controlled with a split dual-stage arrangement and control communication between modems in the WCD. And uplink maximum-power reduction could be controlled based on an evaluation of the frequency channels used by the respective connections, given knowledge of frequency resources allocated for one of those connections, and with a presumed worst-case-scenario frequency-resource allocation on the other connection.

  • Patent number: 10382172
    Abstract: A hybrid orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) system including a transmitter and a receiver is disclosed. The transmitter includes a first spread OFDMA subassembly, a first non-spread OFDMA subassembly and a first common subassembly. The first spread OFDMA subassembly spreads input data and maps the spread data to a first group of subcarriers. The first non-spread OFDMA subassembly maps input data to a second group of subcarriers. The first common subassembly transmits the input data mapped to the first and second group of subcarriers using OFDMA. The receiver includes a second spread OFDMA subassembly, a second non-spread OFDMA subassembly and a second common subassembly. The second common subassembly processes received data to recover data mapped to the subcarriers using OFDMA. The second spread OFDMA subassembly recovers the first input data by separating user data in a code domain and the second non-spread OFDMA subassembly recovers the second input data.

  • Patent number: 10382865
    Abstract: An angle calculator calculates, based on acceleration detected by an acceleration sensor, a tilt angle of a transceiver with respect to the vertical direction. A selector (i) selects a first audio filter to operate if the tilt angle is less than a threshold angle, or (ii) selects a second audio filter to operate if the tilt angle is equal to or greater than the threshold angle. The second audio filter has a lower cutoff frequency that is higher than the lower cutoff frequency of the first audio filter.

  • Patent number: RE47793
    Abstract: Provided are a method of transmitting a dedicated reference signal (DRS), a method of receiving a DRS, and a feedback method of a terminal. The method of transmitting a DRS includes determining a DRS transmitting resource for at least one terminal which is a target of transmission, and transmitting the DRS using the determined transmission resource and notifying the terminal of information about layer used by the terminal. The method of receiving a DRS includes determining a DRS receiving resource, receiving information about layer used by a terminal from a serving cell base station, and receiving the DRS for the terminal using the determined reception resource and the information about layer. Accordingly, a terminal can find the position and sequence of its DRS. In particular, in the case of multi-user multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO) or joint scheduling, it is possible to prevent or remove signal interference using the DRS of another terminal.
